Ciao, Madonna: "Taking A Risk And Being An Artist" Comments (4)

Madonna

Madonna gang bangMadonna, a little cross

And here, check out a 42:36 (!) streaming Deejay: Popcake special devoted to Madonna with fantastic footage from the tour (especially of the atmosphere for fans)

No Fear—Yes Rear Comments (7)

Madonna's Roman ass-flash is even more playful and even more contextually impossible to chalk up to "desperately trying to seem sexy" than the nip-flip was.

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.

Here are my favorite 100+ posts out of nearly 11,000. Please take some time to read (or re-read!) a couple and tweet or Facebook any you like.
